Celebrating the release of their ninth full-length, The Moonlight Butterfly, out this month on Thrill Jockey, influential indie rock band THE SEA & CAKE has been a point of pride for Chicago for twenty years now. Their light, jazz-influenced pop rock has marked them as a band that, according to The Onion, "loves its formula enough to tease it." This new effort has the core elements of the utterly unique SEA & CAKE sound, while introducing a more experimental approach to the song's textures and structures and we can't wait to see how the album translates to the stage.
